5 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
6
7 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
8 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
9 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
10 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
11
12 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
13 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
14 LC_ALL=C
15
16 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
17 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
18 configuration in case DHCP fails.
19
20 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
21 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
22 installation from having a blank password.
23
24 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
25
26 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
27 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
28
29 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
30 init.d/localmount
31
32 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
33
34 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
35
36 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
37 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
38 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
39 altered nicelevel).
40
41* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
42
43 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
44
45 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
46 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
47 alleviated by these typo fixes.
48
49 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
50
51 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
52
53 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
54 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
55 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
56
57* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
58
59 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
62 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
63
64* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
65
66 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
67
68 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
69 by Vlad Yasevich.
70
71* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
72
73 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
74
75 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
76 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
77 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
78
79* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
80
81 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
82
83 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
84
85* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
86
87 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
88
89 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
90 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
91 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
92
93* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
94
95 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
96
97 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
98 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
99
100 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
101
102 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
103 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
104 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
105
106 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
107 routes_eth0=(
108 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
109 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
110 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
111 )
112
113 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
114 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
115
116 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
117 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
118
119 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
120 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
121 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
122 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
123 using the new syntax:
124
125 ifconfig_eth0=(
126 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
127 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
128 "123.456.789.1"
129 )
130
131 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
132 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
133
134 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
135
136 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
137 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
138
139 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
140 setup_vars
141
142 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
143 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
144 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
145
146 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
147
148 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
149 instead of eval echo
150
151 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
152 statically set addresses
153
154 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
155
156 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
157 address gleaned
158
159 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
160
161 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
162 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
163 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
164 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
165
166 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
167 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
168 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
169 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
170
171 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
172 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
173 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
174 be properly shut down.
175
176 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
177
178* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
179
180 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
181
182 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
183
184 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
185 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
186
187 Start udevd if present.
188
189 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
190 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
191 for it ...
192
193 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
194
195 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
196 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
197 is not set instead of just erroring.
198
199 19 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
200
201 Fix irda type-o in /sbin/MAKEDEV, thanks to Tobias Sager <moixa@gmx.ch>.
202
203 Fix type-o in /etc/initrc, bug #41666 (Tom Vergote <bugzilla@tomvergote.be>).
204
205 15 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
206
207 Add RC_TTY_NUMBER to /etc/conf.d/rc to configure how many tty devices
208 are used in scripts such as consolefonts, numlock, etc. This should
209 close bug #39863.
210
211 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/consolefont, bug #40938, thanks to patch from
212 Cory Tusar <ctusar@adelphia.net>.
213
214 09 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
215
216 Add SELinux modifications to /sbin/runscript. This allows runscript to
217 make sure it is running in the right domain. Patch done by
218 Chris PeBenito <pebenito@gentoo.org>.
219
220* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13 (08 Feb 2004)
221
222 08 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
223
224 Fix wrong logic in /etc/init.d/halt.sh which did not umount all mounts
225 _but_ /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/livecd.
226
227 Update /etc/init.d/consolefont to use newer kbd. Should also close
228 bug #39864.
229
230 Fix /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/functions.sh and /sbin/rc to use mkdir rather
231 than install, as newer versions of install is located in /usr/bin. This
232 closes bug #39648.
233
234 06 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
235
236 Tweak livecd support changes and add some more to hopefully sort out
237 last issues, with help from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>.
238
239 Add code to generate /dev/fd, /dev/std* and /dev/core to /sbin/rc,
240 bug #37349.
241
242* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p3 (21 Jan 2004)
243
244 19 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
245
246 Add /sbin/livecd-functions.sh from Brad House <brad_mssw@gentoo.org>
247 for livecd support. Add bits to /sbin/rc to support it.
248
249 06 Jan 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
250
251 Fix type-o in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #37113.
252
253 29 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
254
255 Update /sbin/depscan.sh, /sbin/env-update.sh, src/awk/cachedepends.awk,
256 src/awk/gendepends.awk and src/awk/genenviron.awk to use ENVIRON rather
257 then gawk -v. Also add some tests to see if we got the environment
258 variables.
259
260 28 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
261
262 Fix /sbin/rc to mount /dev/pts with gid=5 and mode=0620, bug #36088.
263
264* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p2 (27 Dec 2003)
265
266 26 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
267
268 Update code to generate /dev from /sys. Add UDEV_NO_SLEEP=1 for
269 hack to not make udev sleep - its not needed as these entries
270 are already present, and not a hotplug event.
271
272 Update /etc/init.d/{consolefont,numlock} to work with udev managed
273 /dev that have devfs layout.
274
275 14 Dec 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
276
277 Fix type-o in /sbin/rc, bug #34837.
278
279* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12p1 (26 Nov 2003)
280
281 26 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
282
283 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to reset pam_console permissions, else
284 the next bootup might be done with some non-root nodes which cause
285 some odd issues.
286
287 Add code to generate /dev from sysfs entries - not much it currently
288 support but block/tty devices, but it is a start for when we have
289 full sysfs support in all drivers.
290
291 Revert carrier detection check, as there is currently too many
292 issues with it, bug #33272.
293
294 Make sure we mount already mounted mount (done in /sbin/rc) with
295 correct permissions, etc, bug #33764. Modified /etc/init.d/checkroot
296 for this.
297
298 16 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
299
300 Fix carrier detection - we need to do a 'ifconfig $IFACE up' else
301 some drivers do not set the IFF_RUNNING bit, bug #33272, thanks to
302 Jason Rhinelander <jason-gentoo@gossamer-threads.com> for the fix.
303
304 15 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
305
306 Add a warning to cachedepends.awk if a rc-script's name ends in
307 '.sh', bug #33134. Add better error checking to /sbin/depscan.sh.
308
309 Fix /etc/init.d/halt.sh to not try and remount virtual devices,
310 also do a few cleanups. Closes bug #33271.
311
312* rc-scripts 1.4.3.12 (11 Nov 2003)
313
314 11 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
315
316 Add carrier detection to /etc/init.d/net.eth0 closing bug #25480;
317 patch by Jordan Ritter <jpr5+gentoo@darkridge.com>.
318
319 Add extra checks for critical directories to /sbin/rc.
320
321 04 Nov 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
322
323 Update /bin/rc-status giving a working '-u' parameter, bug #32417.
324 Fix by Michael Frysinger <vapier@gentoo.org>.
325
326 31 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
327
328 Add support for --tty switch added to setfont and remove consolechars
329 support; modified /etc/init.d/consolefont for this. Also remove
330 consoletools support from /etc/init.d/keymaps.
331
332 29 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
333
334 We should still use /sbin/udev as hotplug agent if /sbin/hotplug do
335 not exist. Updated /sbin/rc for this.
336
337 Add a fix to /etc/init.d/keymaps for bug #32111 (we should not have
338 '-u' in the call to loadkeys when using unicode).
339
340 We should not use '-' in variable names for bash, bug #31184, thanks
341 to Andreas Simon <yuipx@gmx.net>. Updated /sbin/MAKEDEV.
342
343 27 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
344
345 Fix return code checking of fsck in /etc/init.d/checkfs, bug #31349.
346
347 26 Oct 2003; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
348
349 The unmount stuff in /etc/init.d/halt.sh was flawed, in the fact that
350 it called 'umount -t no<insert_fs_here>', which resulted in /proc, etc
351 unmounted anyhow. Change it to remount the last filesystems readonly
352 without trying to unmount any. This fixes a few cases where reboot
353 would halt due to unmounted /proc, etc.
354
355 This change set fixes two things:
356 1) In exporting all functions/variables in functions.sh, rc-services.sh
357 and rc-daemon.sh, we created an overly large environment, and also
358 broke stuff like glftpd. Do not do this, and hope whatever caused
359 the issues previously is fixed in the meantime. This should close
360 bugs #25754 and #31794.
361 2) gendepend.awk used to generate deptree with functions called
362 depinfo_<scriptname> which set appropriate variables when called.
363 This broke if the scriptname contained characters that is not valid
364 for bash variable names. Changed things to use an array fixing this.
365 This closes bug #24092.
366
367 Change /sbin/rc again to not set the hotplug agent to /sbin/udev, as
368 /sbin/hotplug will call udev as well.
369
370 Fix a logic error in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh that cause the
371 get_dep_info() function to skip the last entry in the RC_DEPEND_TREE
372 array (in my case 'net').
373
374 We did not handle the 'net' dependency properly in valid_iuse() and
375 valid_iafter(). Fix this in /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh, closing
376 bugs #30327 and #31950.
377
378 Change an occurance of /etc/modutils in modules-update.8 to
379 /etc/modules.d/ closing bug #31171.

7 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21). 383 More bootsplash fixes, bug #21019 (comment #21).
